OBS client career saved

A client of Karen Brookes, who heads our London Office, was recently spared prison after pleading guilty to a sexual assault.

The District Judge who heard the case commented that the offence fell within the sentencing bracket including a prison sentence up to 6 months’.  However, Karen persuaded the judge to hear mitigation on the client’s behalf without adjourning the case for a Probation Report.  In the event, the judge found that special circumstances existed which allowed him to sentence below the given range and to impose a financial penalty.  This had the effect of avoiding the need for the client to comply with the Sex Offender Register.

The client, a City based financial adviser, was greatly relieved at the result and most grateful for Karen’s work on his behalf.
